6:15 pm
from where we had them earlier. see you back here in eightmi tes. let's take a deeper look at the week in politics. >> it's iday, supposed to be payday. hundreds of thousands of federal employees are getting paychecks with zeros on it. >> literally. >> that's because we're in day 21 of the partialen gover shutdown with no end in sight. >> this comes as president trump tones down hisea t to guclare a national emergency. >> there's new int on two different fronts in the russi investigation. >> chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press," is joining us. what do you think is making the president change his tone? wh bah rom teris he feeli now? >> when it comes to the national emergency thing? >> yes. >> it's simply, i think he's be told the reality of the situation, that it just mov the fight from congress to the
6:16 pm
courts. but it's still a fight. and he probably, even if it would lose, and if he were to keep appealing and hope towi it might take years. >> his track record in the courts -- >> isn't very good. he himself is aware of this. he mentioned the travel ban today when he was backing off. i think there are a lot of republicans on capitol hl uncomfortable with this theory and thinking okay, president elizabeth warren some day might declare a national emergency on guce viol and then go around congress ong gun leslation. this is not a way to solve a political fight when you really -- when the emergency is of queionable nature. i do think it sort ofuts us back to square one with the shutdown. it doesn't feel like there's an end in sight. that said, i had a democratic congresswoman from michigan on my show today, she said i came fromki t to some federal
6:17 pm
workers who don't have, you know -- she goes, we got to get this government open. we have to figure this out. she dn't have any lines in the sand. i think everybody went home for the weouend. these members and senators went home from the weekend. they're all going to hear the stories from the federal workers. it's going to put the human face on the missing paycheck. debbie brought up, they might get back pay but if they can't make a payment, it'sad b for their credit. the human toll i think cracks this. i think the senate republicans and t new democrats that got elected. abigail in our area here, who won a trumpdistrict. they're the ones that want to have a compromise and get this done. if they can't crack this impasse, there's no group in congress to do it. >> what about the big guy ithe white house? he was saying -- >> he could be that guy, but he
6:18 pm
won't doit. how do they get around him, though? you have to -- you have t able to override a veto. >> override a veto or fure out how to give him something that they can say is not a wall, he can say i'm getting a fence, whatever it is. they probably have to drop the semantics on the wording here. fence, barrier, whatever it is. the president today said call i peaches. >> nancy pelosi said it's a beaded curtain. >> it seems to the average american, you're fighting over at to call it? there isn't a lot of disagreement about money for border security. get it done. >> speaking of the big guy in the white house. one thing wouldn't want to talk about right now, is michael cohen, the o word coming he's going to be testifying in front of the house now, in pue ic. finally going to find out about whether or not he was in the czech republic? >> what's the impa of this? >> it's like this -- to put it
6:19 pm
in, it's like the first episode what's going to be aust, i think, crazy year in these h of representatives when it comes to investigating the esent. we have this, three weeks later the mueller report may hit congress. i think it's the opening of what i think this year is going to be about. we bring up the president, you know, i don't think -- he's a fire starter no matter what happens. he needs a crisis. he's not comfortable unless there's a mini fire. i don't think he wants government shutdown to distract from the other stuff. he likes distctions for distractions sake. that said, this government shutdown, the fight over the border, the more we're focussed on that, the less we're focussed on michael cohen. i think when michael cohen stifies befor congress, good luck trying to change the subject anymore mr. i think republicans are telling him, hey, you're stretching the
6:20 pm
bounds here of our support for you on capitol hill right now on this. ngyou're really g to need us when the r muellort comes. >> do you think it's too soon, though? >> first he has to go to jail. >> right. >> that's why the timing. i think it's more risky for the democrats to lead with michael cohen than some might thing. dmichael cohen has admito lying to congress. this is not exactly the mostib cr witness to put innd public, this is the first witness the democrats put. i think it's risky because he's not john dean, know, i don't -- it's more complicated than that. >> he didn't fall on his swo in an honorable fashion. >> he doesn't necessarily have the keys to the kingdom of what happened in the white house. i think people have expectations michael cohe is the g who has all the answers and he doesn't. it's risky f democrats to lead
6:21 pm
with him. that said, time is not on their side. he goes to jail in march. >> what about a manafort the oops? >> his little oops. >> who has the sharpie. >> the manafort end game seems to be the last piece of the puzzan before mort can finish his report. is manafort headed to jail or cooperating with mueller, right? we don't seem to know.s manafort desperate to prove he's still a cooperating witness here. >> with the plates spinning, who do you have on the air sunday? >> it's an interesting show. te cruz and tim kaine on the shutdown. and then claire mca skill is going toon com she's a former senator but an nbc news democratic alt. she was always more of a center left person. put it this way, claire mccat
6:22 pm
skill doesn't have the same filter she used to. i promise you. >> and snow is not going to deter any of this. >> to the snow you have to counter that. >> that's right. snuggle up, light a fire and trust me. >> that's going to be some fun. that'll light your fire thanks chuck. >> the shutdown will have to end at some point, right? but notre "meet the," the longest television program in history, since chuck doesn't look a day over 48. join chuck sunday morning atn 10:30 her news4. ifou ye been out driving today you've seen the salt trucks on the road spreading ou. g is going to be back with his full forecast and tell us when the snow starts falling tomorrow. firefighters now have an

6:25 pm
reble snowstorm headed our way. those people up north aren't going to laugh at us for this one. >> probably not. i think most area get at least 3 or 4 inches. that's a respectable storm. a lot of people are showing pictures of lines on social
6:26 pm
media at thestore. >> it's a trigger. >> it's the weekend. you have to get ready for it. we're talking about a couple days here where saturday and sunday are days if you're headed to the grocery store, you have to have enough to get to that. so by sunday afternoon and by monday things should get back to normal. look at the storm, in towards st. louis people abandoning cars on highway around the st. louis area, u they areer a winter storm warning for . for us, we are under a winter storm warning tomorrow 8:00 a.m. notice the snow making its way in here. i think it get to d.c around the noon hour here. but it's going to be light. very light to start. and it's going to stay on the s lightee through the early afternoon. by late afternoon, by 7:00, that's when it starts to get heavier. especially in th weste zones, and then it picks up. if you have plans, i'm b suppos at a friend's party tomorrow night. you may want to thint that
